Erin's Rose

I really had no intention of uploading anything else today, but when I saw what had happened in our perennial garden, I changed my mind.

This rosebush was bought a few years ago when my DGD Erin's favorite color was PINK. Every year it has lots of buds, but this year it has exceeded our expectations!!! There are so many, and it smells so delicious!, that I just had to share it with all of you.

Home from Baltimore

Gee it's nice to be home!! We had a three day bus tour that took us to Baltimore MD. The reason we wanted to go was that it was expressly to see two RED Sox games. There were a lot of extras, like the Naval Academy at Annapolis, the Inner Harbor, and everyone's favorite, the tour of Camden Yards that included being in the dugout, and the expensive suites at the ballpark.

The weather was just right - hot, humid, typical MD summer - and the Sox won both games. We met fabulous people, ate WAAAAAAAAAY too much, and came home at midnight last night thoroughly exhausted!! Back on the diet today. BOO!!!!!!!

Now to reality.......... I spent an hour catching up on messages, and had time to make a card that covers three challenges. Here it is.

Speedy's Friends Challenge was to use Buttons and Bows. Check.
CAS70 was to use a favorite sentiment. Who could resist Mae West and ANY of her comments? Check.
TLC276 Getting Personal/Favorite Technique. Check. I just love Clean and Simple cards and punches. I also love watercoloring and coloring with markers (I think I spent my childhood with crayons and coloring books!). The reasoon I chose MFP's Cupcake Birthday image is beacuse we are a family of chocolate cake lovers. DGD Tommy only eats chocolate cake. DD Amy eats the cake but not the frosting. DIL Debbie eats the frosting, so they swap plates!! DGD Erin LOVES cherries, and finds excuses to put them on or in anything. How could I resist using this image!!

That's it. I gotta put stuff away from our trip, and lots of stuff to catch up on. Have a fun day.
